You woke up today. That is tremendously positive.
You have air in your lungs. Your heart is beating. You have thoughts in your head. These are all filled with positive energy.
You are reading these words on a computer, tablet or phone. The positivity of that is impressive.
It is very easy to forget that the positive exists in the smallest, most trivial things in our lives. Just being alive and living every day is immeasurably positive.
I know that it can be easy to lose sight of this. Reading the news will make almost anyone feel negative. I know many people who are struggling with money, health, weight, relationships, work, time management, and other matters that make it hard for them to feel good about life. It often feels as if the negativity outweighs the positivity, and that there is far more bad than good in our world.
I know it may not feel like the truth, but you and I can control this. We get to choose, every day, if we want to let the negativity overwhelm us, or if we want to find positives in this world.
Feeling Positive IS stronger than feeling negative.
That feels like a lie. Except, in an abundant universe, it’s the truth. We are just so used to being inundated with negatives that it can feel like positivity is at a premium, and hard to come by.
This is why recognizing the positive in the small things that make up our everyday lives is so useful. We are here. We have choices each and every day. Sure, there are times we get frustrated, and we are made to feel as though this life is pointless. Except, I want you to know, it is not.
You are valuable. You are important, and You matter. This is the truest thing for you to know and recognize about your life.
We are energy at our core. The entire universe is made up of energy. From the smallest nanoscopic particle to galaxies across the cosmos itself, all of it boils down to energy. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it just changes form. Energy in its most raw form is neutral. We get to choose if we want to generate the negative or the positive in our lives.
We get to choose if we want to live in a positive world, or a negative one. The decision to only recognize things that make us feel bad is really, truly up to each and every one of us. It takes very little to find positivity…if you make the effort to do so.
We should not ignore that negative things happen. There are things which we need to actively work to better and things we can do little to nothing about. Sometimes we are going to feel negative about the world…but it is up to us whether we feel it, or choose to sink into it and let it overwhelm our senses.
I know that I prefer to feel good rather than bad. I think it’s worth it to seek every possible way to make this so. How do you want to feel?
Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.
Knowing that there is positivity in the littles, most mundane aspects of our lives, we get to choose if we want to acknowledge it or not. When we seek out positivity in the little things, we can overcome the seemingly vast amounts of negativity the world presents us, and as such we empower ourselves. When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness. We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings. When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for. Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
